The Lagos and Ogun Zonal Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), ACM Peter Kibo, has warned drivers to desist from using worn-out tyres when driving on the road to save lives and property.

He expressed displeasure on how driving with substandard tyres, recklessness, impatience, excess-speed and drunk driving take the lead contributors to road crashes in the country.

ACM Kibo disclosed this in reaction to a lone accident that occurred in front of Christopher University along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, in the early hours of Tuesday, June 1, 2021, killing one person while two others critically injured.

The unfortunate incident occourred when a Toyota Sienna SUV marked with KMR508XA loaded with bags of foodstuffs and other goods was said to have had one of its front tyre bursted while on motion, causing it to summersaulted in the process, throwing its content on the road.

It was reported that the driver died instantly while two other occupants of the vehicle sustained varying degrees of injuries.

The corpse of the victim, it was gathered had been deposited in Idera Hospital mogue, Sagamu while those injured were receiving treatment in the same hospital.

ACM Kibo, while commiserating with the family of the deceased, advised motorists to desist from buying fairly-used tyres (tokunbo tyres), in view of its attendant consequences, adding that road users should place value on their lives.

“Life does not have a duplicate, therefore, it is advisable for every individual to ensure they drives carefully, obey every rules and regulations guiding the use of roads.

"Safety on our roads required collective responsibilities and we all have one role and the other to play in reducing crashes,’’ he said.
